I found this guy on my pillow and have been told it's a bedbug. Much chaos ensued.

A few days later, these two insects were found. Are they also bedbugs, or an entirely different species?? Any expertise is greatly appreciated!

I believe it's cob-web spider: Steatoda bipunctata

I like how it states beneath 1st instar 'Actual Size 1,5 mm'
It could easily be assumed this is the size of the 1st Instar.
This would make the 'fully-fed' adult about 2 inches in size.
That would be worrying.

The first photo looks like it might be a bed bug. The other two photo's don't look like bed bugs, at least to me.

If it's bed bugs you need to look into the hidden corners of your mattress, where there's one there is usually many.
